Dr. Jay Schwartz

Dr. Jay Schwartz, MD, FAAP, founded Collin County Pediatrics in 2007 with a goal of creating a pediatric and adolescent medicine practice that would combine high quality care; a warm comfortable atmosphere for both child and parent; and the newest technology to assist in the doctor and his staff in caring for your child. His philosophy is simple: He treats your child as if he or she was his own child. Dr. Schwartz grew up in a small town of 2000 people in southwest Wisconsin and is a graduate of Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago. He completed his residency training at Indiana University Medical Center/Riley Hospital for Children. Dr. Schwartz has had the opportunity to work with many of the national leaders in pediatric medicine while at these institutions. He began practicing pediatrics in Texas in 1994 when stationed at Dyess AFB in Abilene and attained the rank of Major prior to completing his service commitment in 1998. More recently, he practiced for almost 8 years in Midland, Texas prior to relocating to Frisco in the summer of 2007 to start Collin County Pediatrics. While in Midland, Dr. Schwartz was an expert speaker on behalf of several pharmaceutical companies on the topics of pediatric asthma, ADD/ADHD, and appropriate uses of antibiotics in children. He also served several years as physician consultant to Midland Independent School District. Dr. Schwartz is an board certified pediatrician and member of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Personal Dr. Schwartz and his family live in Stonebridge Ranch in McKinney. His 3 boys attend Frisco ISD and are the baby doctors pictured on our home page. He enjoys seasonal sports with his boys and is an occassional golfer, jogger, tennis player and Mavs/Roughriders/Cowboys fan.
